Those who preach may never forget that not there words should resound but the Words of God should enlighten the people.
Though the speaker may allow others to see the weakness of weak imperfect man, our incompleteness and how in our inadequacy we can try to make ourselves better, trying to become beloved children of God.
Each of us has to share our experiences and our knowledge so that everybody can be helped and grow, feeling that we all are there to help each other to understand the Word of God and find hope in the promises of God.
- Christ himself existed not to present us with the supreme spiritual spectacle of history
- Christ himself existed to achieve the critical thing in history.
- Gospel = act of God
- Gospel calls for an act + inspires it
- Gospel preaching => “function” of the great act
- true sermon = real deed
- sermon = preacher’s personality into an act <= chief form of Christian life and practice

it is when we plant God’s Word into our heart. If our hearts are ready and receptive, the spiritual seed will flourish and be a treasure of great value.
- Assembling Together, Fellowship and the Apostate Church (endtimesprophecyreport.wordpress.com)
IN the times in which we live, one is sometimes tempted to forsake the “assembling of ourselves together.” This goes hand-in-hand with the difficulty of finding a church which sticks strictly to the Word of God.As opposed to finding plenty of churches which claim to stick to the Bible but who insert tons of their own doctrines, advice, speculation, etc.Almost inevitably, a church will be recommended, visited and evaluated. Almost as inevitable, it will be found wanting in the very basics of what a Christian church should be.
+We are to preach the gospel. The Holy Spirit will lead the person to the Lord–not us. Then, that person will either accept or reject the free gift of eternal salvation. Other than preaching the gospel (a very short and concise message), we really have nothing to do with it.
The latest craze from the apostate Church is that preaching the gospel is no longer enough; that instead of preaching the gospel, man should insert himself between the Holy Spirit and the possible convert. The “convert” should be “discipled” in the fables of man; that prideful man does a better job of “schooling” the “convert’ than the Holy Spirit.
This is the wide road to further apostasy.

There is nothing more important to your health, happiness, business and professional life than the Word of God, it is not what I say that is important, but what the Word teaches you on how to live and live a full and complete life and when that living is finished and you die, you will die empty because you lived in the Word and by the Word and that Word of truth set you Free!

The word of God is God communicating with us and the word of God is God revealed to us. In it we see His nature and His character. The word of God is forever settled in heaven. The word of God is a living spirit (John 6:63). The word of God reveals the mind of God and therefore His will to us. What can man do without the word of God? Nothing! It is the word of God that gives us the means of salvation from sin. It confronts us with the reality of our fallen state, the doom of sinners and the way out through the love and mercy of God. It is the same word that serves as our compass on our journey to Heaven (Acts 20:32). The word of God also reveals God’s provision for our successful and victorious living here on earth, and how to harness His promises in our lives.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the
heart. Hebrews 4 : 12.

For this, therefore, I say that Christ Himself existed not to present us with the supreme spiritual spectacle of history, but to achieve the critical thing in history. The Gospel is an act of God,
gathered in a point but thrilling through history, and it calls for an act, and inspires it. Its preaching must therefore be an act, a “function” of the great act. A true sermon is a real deed. It puts the preacher’s personality into an act. That is his chief form of Christian life and practice. And one of his great difficulties is that he has to multiply words about what is essentially a deed. If you remember what men of affairs think about the people who make set speeches in committee you will realize how the preacher loses power whose sermons are felt to be productions, or lessons, or speeches, rather than real acts of…
